121 Reasons I Love Music: 34-44

34. A song can offer hope, when very little else can. “How The Day Sounds” by Greg Laswell (yes that’s Elijah Wood.)

35. I try SO HARD not to like some songs and then find myself singing along. “E.T.” by Katy Perry.

36. Sometimes you need more-than-makeout music. “This Is Hardcore” by Pulp.

37. My mom and I like to share music. Maybe it’s genetic. “We Are The Tide” by Blind Pilot.

38. Some songs are timeless and I can love new music as much as I love songs that came out decades before I was born. “Across the Universe” by The Beatles.

39. Some songs transcend genre and style and just speak to your heart. “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera.

40. Sometimes I have no clue what a song means, but I love it just the same. “Rebellion (Lies)” by Arcade Fire.

41. Even bands I generally don’t like have songs worth a listen or ten. “Aberdeen” by Cage the Elephant.

42. Sometimes you need a drunk sing-a-long song. “Possum Kingdom” by The Toadies (Replace “Do you wanna die?” with “Do you want champagne?” Viola!)

43. I have fallen in love listening to the corniest, dorkiest, ashamed-I-listen-to-it-est song ever. “Hey There Delilah” by Plain White T’s.

44. Everyone needs a stripper song. “Felicia” by The Constellations.


About Jen Van Tieghem

There aren’t many things I love more than music. While life spins away at a rapid beat I’ve realized it’s important to spend it doing what I love – enjoying music in San Diego. I have a handful of favorite venues, a heart full of favorite bands, and decided to write about it.
